I’ve asked for lots of advice on here already so I thought it was time to add some of my own!
If you’re planning on visiting Venice, here’s some foodie tips I can heartily recommend after my husband and I went there on our honeymoon last year:
Easily the best food experience in the entire city, in my view! We went for their 7-course tasting menu with accompanying wines and it was a night we’ll never forget. It wasn’t cheap, but it was worth it. Stunning food, gorgeous, interesting local wines, a remarkable ambience and simply the best view of the canal:
2. Osteria Alla Staffa
Sort of the exact opposite, really - this was a family-run restaurant with the most delicious, home-cooked authentic food which was ridiculous good value. We had a bottle of local house red for about 13 euros and it was fabulous. It gets booked up quickly and I can see why - we went twice in the end!
If you get the chance to book one of these tours, do! Cichetti is like Venetian tapas and there’s some really ancient, hidden-away taverns that specialise in certain dishes. This tour is about 2-3 hours long, starting in the early evening, and the guides are really knowledgeable and lovely. We tried about 6-8 dishes with wines and it was such a brilliant experience.
We weren’t expecting much from a hotel restaurant but the tasting menu here is wonderful! Again, you can pair it with wines, and the food is seasonal and fresh - beautiful seafood!
5 Dal Moro’s
Lastly, for incredible pasta takeaway to munch on the go (or by a quiet spot near a canal), try Dal Moro’s. Made fresh as you wait, but very good value (about 5-8 euros, which is super cheap for Venice!)
We loved Venice so much we want to go back again very soon so if anyone has any further tips, or even vineyard visit suggestions etc, then please let me know!
